They still have them in a separate sub-forum. Might need to be registered/logged in to see it though.

Re: TV thread

Space Force is uneven, maybe partly because it’s the first season and maybe partly because it’s got fatal flaws. Despite that there was still stuff to laugh at in every episode and i blitzed right through it, so there’s no reason to avoid giving it a try.

Re: Cubs release 30 players

I don't have the willpower to look up every name, but that strikes me as mostly guys who are either just added on MiLB FA deals, or fringe/non-prospects who have been with the org for 4+ years. EDIT: This is probably a better distillation https://twitter.com/cubprospects/status/1266477733808427008

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Uncut Gems was just as anxiety inducing as I heard it would be, really well done. When the climactic game started after the Celtics won the opening tip I thought to myself "I'm 99% sure the Celtics win this game, how is this going to go wrong?" They did not wait long after the game end...

I think absurdly expanded rosters are part of the deal and why they think they can pull that off.

Good for you Kyle, I did something similar in taking my Twitter consumption to near zero and find myself much happier for it.

Why in the world would the players association get stuck on, of all things, community dressing rooms and showers. It sounds engineered to be the dumbest hangup they could possibly choose.

Probably way too wishful thinking here, but does the (Democratic) Governor of NC get to pick a replacement if he has to resign? Per this link, the governor decides but the interim senator has to be the same party as the departing senator: https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/vacanc...

Re: TV thread

I'm enjoying Middleditch and Schwartz a lot more than I thought I would. From the trailer it seemed like next-gen Whose Line(which has its moments, but eh), but the long form improv using an audience story to anchor it with callbacks has been pretty funny.
